- Use a homemade solution
Make a simple solution with soap, hydrogen peroxide, and liquid dish soap in equal parts.
Simply pour the mixture over your red wine stain and let it soak for one minute.
- Blot the stained area
Now keep blotting the stained area with paper towels till it’s entirely dry.
- Use baking soda
Now you need to mix some baking soda and water into a thick paste and spread it over the stain.
To remove the residual moisture and odor, generously apply the paste all over the stained area. Then, cover it with a clean cloth and weigh it down with something heavy such as a large book and let it sit overnight
Finally, vacuum the whole area to remove the baking soda paste.
